Dutch combat network capabilities to improve with Elbit

16th December 2020 - 16:15 GMT | by The Shephard News Team

Israeli company will provide dismounted C2 equipment, software-defined radios and compact night vision systems.

Elbit Systems has received contracts with a combined value of about $65 million from the Dutch MoD for additional digital soldier-borne and vehicular systems, as part of a broader Royal Netherlands Army modernisation programme.

The Israeli company announced on 16 December that it will supply digital soldier systems and vehicular integration of ‘improved combat network capabilities’, including TORCH-X dismounted C2 systems and E-LynX software-defined radios systems.

The solutions to be provided under this $50 million, three-year contract are designed to address unique requirements that were presented by the Netherlands Defence Material Organization and field-tested by Royal Netherlands Army troops.

At the same time, Elbit also announced a deal worth about $15 million to provide XACT nv32 micro night vision monocular systems for the Netherlands Armed Forces.

The initial contract will be performed over a period of two years, with the potential for additional follow-on orders for seven years.

Elbit has already supplied the Royal Netherlands Army with digital soldier systems and network-combat warfare systems.
